Internet Archive Digitization Services - Partner Documents

Internet Archive has regional digitization centers in 32 locations and 8 countries. Our teams digitize over 1500 eBooks per day. We also have the capability to digitize archival items, bound and single sheet items, thesis, periodicals, microform and other items with our non-destructive, color process. We have worked with over a thousand library partners who have allowed their content to be digitized.

You may also visit OpenLibrary.org to use our "free for the public" eBook Lending library. Originally created to benefit the print disabled community, readers all over the world may now enjoy for free, hundreds of thousands of modern books and millions of public domain, library-curated eBooks.

To see examples of some wonderful archival materials digitized by the IA, please visit Archival Collections.

If you would like to have access to over 200,000 modern eBook, please join the 1,000+libraries and the 51 United State Chief Operating Librarians who are members of our free modern eBook lending library. Register your library here.
